I am 23 and a mom of two ages 2 & 5. I was diagnosed with shingles 2 days ago for the first time. It started as a rash on the left side of my forehead. Now it is basically on all if the leftside of my forehead, my nose, white part of my left eye. My left eye is completely swollen shut. I am on percocet. Acyclovir, azithromyacin(eye)and aleve. Ant idea how I can get my swollen eye unswollen again? I am pretty freaked out. The pain started in the nerves in my forehead but now is in my eye. Pain is unbearable and percocet barely helps at all. How long until the swelling disapears? Any help would be appreciated. My two year old isn't fully vaccinated. I have to stay in my room away from everyone... It's so lonely. I didn't even know I had the chicken pox before. I have read that most people who get it at my age gave some other serious underlying condition they don't know about yet.... Is this true, what kinds of things should I get tested for? HELP!!!!
